Creating presentations with VIM (Video)

tuesday, july 21, 2020

When giving presentations, I usually don’t use slides, but a live-coding and live-demoing approach, with some minimalistic “editor-like” slides using VIM. I’ve got asked many times how to make these presentations, so I decided to record a video how to create technical presentations in VIM, with ASCII art diagrams, colored highlights, and some scripting.

What you see in the presentations are only ASCII files opened with the VIM editor, which is set to some specific configuration. You can have a look at my Dotfiles on GitHub how to configure the .vimrc file.

 

Happy VIM presenting!
